Do you have an internal IT team? Do they often feel overwhelmed or struggle with skill gaps? A Managed IT Services provider can help take some of the burden off their shoulders. There is a common misconception among business owners that hiring a Managed IT Services provider means handing over control of their company’s entire IT department.
Nothing could be further from the truth!
When you partner with a Managed IT Services provider you can reap big rewards! In fact, your provider and IT team can work together to grow your company. Your provider can fill in any gaps in your existing infrastructure by assuming the mundane tasks that keep your in-house team occupied on less-than-productive tasks. Your MSP can free up your team to focus on mission-critical tasks that can grow your business.
Managed IT Services can be scaled up (or down) as needed. When you partner with a provider you benefit from a more secure operation and better data management, providing you with peace of mind.
Here are a few key ways that partnering with a Managed IT Services provider can supplement your in-house team:
1. Automate Repetitive Processes – Your employees deal with multiple, repetitive processes every day. Mundane repetitive tasks take time away from critical processes and increase the risks of human error. Your provider can automate these tasks allowing your team to focus on more productive work.
2. Enhance Existing Infrastructure – Hosting infrastructure in-house is complex and expensive. Your MSP can serve a valuable role as a consultant hosting your IT infrastructure on your company’s behalf. You maintain control of your systems but your provider hosts and maintains them.
3. Round-The-Clock Support – What happens if your network goes down in the middle of the night and there’s no one around? With Managed IT Services, you’re covered! An MSP can function as a 24/7/365 team monitoring your network. If a problem comes up, it can often be dealt with before it becomes critical.
4. Lower Your Costs – Outsourcing all or part of your IT is more cost-effective than hiring a full-time person. When you hire in-house there is a competitive salary, benefits, paid leave, and more to consider. With Managed IT Services, coverage can be scaled up or down based on your need. Over time this can offer considerable savings!
